The best big band and jazz vocalist around today...

Jeff Hooper is one of the most talented and best-liked singers on the European music-scene. He is an international known cabaret artist. Jeff developed his talent as a singer with the famous Syd Lawrence Orchestra.

Early in his career he worked with Matt Monro (who taught him how to tie a bow tie!), Morecambe and Wise, and Stephane Grapelli. He sang with Dame Shirley Bassey and Sir Tom Jones at the opening of the National Assembly of Wales. He is a great favourite on the BBC RADIO 2 show and Friday Night is Music Night. Jeff is a friend of the great lyricist Hal David of Bacharach and David fame, and has performed new songs by him at David’s request.

He has also featured in big marketing drive’s for Skoda cars, Jeep Motors, both all featuring John Cacavas songs with Hal David lyrics.

Jeff likes to give really well presented shows with entertaining dialogue, and combined with his magnificent singing this has made him a popular figure on the music scene. Not just lists of songs, but fully developed shows.

His work is prolific, with overseas concert tours, weekly radio shows, luxury cruises and regular performances across Britain and beyond in some of the world's top jazz clubs, concert halls and cabaret spots. Jeff and his Swing Easy band have been selected once again to be the Strictly Come Dancing Tour Band.

Whether a concert, jazz festival, corporate event, wedding, or any special function, there is no finer performer than Jeff Hooper and his Swing Easy Big Band.

The Jeff Hooper Swing Easy Big Band

The Swing Easy Show features Jeff fronting his own full size big band. Jeff Hooper was made to front this kind of band. They are dynamic, stylish and generate excitement and enthusiasm.

The show features the songs of Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and our very own Matt Monro. The band plays with passion and commitment, and is always at the top of its game. Fronting the orchestra we have Jeff himself with his great voice, singing with passion, sensuality, style and feeling. This is a show featuring the greatest popular songs and an entertaining dialogue.

A really BIG show in every sense of the word.

Hal David R.I.P.

25:05:1921 - 01:09:2012

We are so sorry to hear of the passing of World famous lyricist
Hal David.

Jeff Hooper worked with Hal David and John Cacavas and has wonderful memories of the great man, a true gentleman, and a music legend. Jeff recorded many songs written by the partnership, some of which are featured on this website.

He will be sadly missed, but his words will last forever!

Dave Lee R.I.P.

We were devastated to hear the tragic news that our long-serving friend and bass player Dave Lee has passed away following a cardiac arrest.

Dave was a larger than life character, a superb musician, and a brilliant businessman. He leaves us all the poorer, and we treasure the great music we made, and the fun & laughs we all had together.

God Bless you.
